Convenient and Good

Good brunch, and love the convenience of having restaurants on resort property of Marriott Kauai Beach Club. Only complaint is that it is not open for lunch, and closes too early for breakfast.

Excellent location poolside and accessible for swimmers. A bit pricey as is expected with any Marriott. Good taste. Service is usually good, but can be slow to dismal depending on time of day.

I am not fond of Hotel Restaurants, but this one is an exception. It was our last night and we did not want to go off the premises. Rather than partaking in Friday’s Prime Rid and King Cab Buffet with all th trimmings, we could not pass up the fresh Monchong grilled simply with olive oil and a sprig of... More

This restaurant/bar is poolside @ the Kaui Marriott Resort. The location is beautiful surrounded by fantastic landscaping, the ocean and the pool. We sat @ the bar for an evening cocktail and shared an appetizer and prime rib dinner. The appetizer was free with our resort fee as we were guests of the hotel. Our bartenders Tyrone and Kanoe were... More

The food is good, but the price is crazy high. If you can leave the resort, you are much better off.

we waited 15 minutes to get a table then waited another 20 minutes to get service. The waiter brought the wrong size beer and it took 15 minutes to bring the right one. Then we ordered three appetizers and he forgot to bring one of them. Finally asked him about it and 10 minutes later brought them and charged us... More

I ordered a pad thai and there's nothing to praise about it, and doesn't taste like pad thai at all. It lacks the "Thai" taste on it, no crushed peanuts and few pieces of shrimp on it (3 pcs) for a very pricey food. My husband ordered a lemongrass chicken that tasted more like a curried chicken than lemongrass. Very... More

Average service, average food, we ate several times there because it was our first option at the hotel (Marriott), beautiful scenery by the pool. Over priced if compared with Duke's which is so close by. We had the crab and prime roast dinner and it was really good, US50 per person.

Kukui's Restaurant is on the grounds of the Marriott Kauai resort. It's an open air style restaurant. You can choose to be covered by a big table umbrella or under a roof. Either way there is plenty of fresh air. The staff was attentive and courteous. The food was excellent. I ate there 5 times and each meal was excellent.... More

Not usually a fan of buffets. BUT. This was excellent. The prime rib was medium rare and delish served w au juice and horsie cream sauce. Wonderful! Great seasoning too. King crab excellent. The blubbery cheesecake was light and melt in your mouth. Didn't eat anything else. But hubby tried some pasta which wasn't great but pasta at a buffet... More
